NDT Ultrasonic Device Question

I am developing a simple remote switch that will communicate with it's receive through a short (one metre) length of stainless steel. The application cannot use wires or RF energy. In creating a bench-top system to use for characterizing the structure (it has a few joints with metal-metal contact but is otherwise a very clean 2" diameter stainless tube), I'd need to find a device that will generate acoustic pulses in the sub-150 kHz range. I thought of NDT devices for flaw detection in concrete, etc - not sure as I'm unfamiliar with this equipment. Any suggestions on a better approach or sources of equipment that will do this job for me?

What is the remote switch sensing at the end of the stainless tube? A little more information may help us to suggest a means of communication.

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
